How to Perform


​To stretch your quadriceps, stand with your feet together. Then bend one leg behind you while keeping your hips locked and knees together. Hold your foot behind with one or both hands and pull it toward your buttocks. Hold for a few seconds, then slowly return to the starting position. Repeat on the other side.

Stretching quadriceps is a lot easier to perform with the support of water, as opposed to performing it on land. So you don't have to worry about falling or losing your balance. You will also place less weight on your leg and make the exercise easier and more fun to perform.

Quadricep Muscle Stretch in the Pool

Quadriceps sometimes referred to as "quads," are one of the biggest and most important muscles in your body. They are located in the front thigh and are responsible for providing stability and strength in the legs.

Quadriceps also contribute to the overall leg movement.  Stretching your quads can help improve performance, and prevent injury. In this post, I will explain how to stretch your quadriceps simply and effectively. And without the need to use any tools.
